MEDIEVAL JETON FIND
Paul Walker and Chris Wheeler of Trowbridge Metal Detecting Club recently found a rare medieval jeton in a Priston field.
The object is a 15th Century Medieval Jeton of France (reign of Charles VI 1380 – 1422 AD).
Jetons were used for early accountancy calculations, before the advent of arabic numerals and to cope with the complexity of multiple money types circulating at any one time. They were used on a board divided into rows and columns hence the expression "Exchequer" because of the resemblance to a chess board.

HISTORIC PARISH MAPIn 1991 a landscape survey was carried out in Priston by the old County of Avon. Apart from the very interesting booklet that they produced at this time, a map was commissioned based on the old Manorial maps of the Seventeenth and Eighteenth century. It depicts the old field boundaries and field names in use at that time, present day housing is also shown.
The owners of the Parish, including their arms, the Granary, Bullford bridge and the Mill etc. are illustrated.
I have managed to arrange a reprint of this fascinating map, which when framed, is a real conversation piece.
map measures 594mm x 841mm, in black and white, price £4.
